The environment of the magnetized planets of our solar system gained an increasing interest over the years, because of the numerous space missions that are (NASA’s Cassini) or will be (JAXA’s SPRINT-A\HISAKI, NASA’s JUNO and ESA’s JUICE) studying these systems, and because of the discovery of giant extra-solar planets. As planetary emissions driven by the magnetosphere interactions (auroral emissions) are most probably the only emissions that could be observed from the extra-solar planets, the understanding of that from the solar system planets is a key topic of planetary sciences. Radio emissions, emitted over a large range of distance from the planet, can probe a large region of the magnetosphere and trace the coupling between the distant magnetosphere and the planet ionosphere.
The session will discuss recent advances in our understanding of planetary magnetospheres, relevant for a number of current and future missions.
